How to tell when your truck is in a Regen?

Noobish question, but how can you tell if your truck is in a regen?

Look at the fuel mileage gauge (lie-o-meter). When it starts dropping like a rock for no apparent reason, you're in a regen.

Second what Diesel Dave said; your "lie-ometer" and fuel gauge will drop like the stock market. I also notice (usually when towing heavy) that the engine strains a bit more. Nothing alarming, just a change from the norm.

A pyrometer will be the most accurate indicator.

I am also new to 6.7s. I installed a ETG this last weekend. Big Spike in the temps during REGEN! Also, I have an edge insight that shows when it is in REGEN. it seems to happen at about 15k seconds from the last one.

I am about to install a new way to tell when it is in REGEN. After I delete the Gorical parts, I will be able to say that it never goes into REGEN with great accuracy.

While driving? I guess he didn't specify while driving or parked.
